President of the Association, Carlton Brodie, states that this opportunity further encapsulates the Executive’s intent, “To develop the sport of basketball in Antigua and Barbuda and to use the sport as a tool to empower today’s youth with confidence, commitment and integrity, and to offer programs that promote healthy lifestyles, encourage moral character, develop self-discipline, cultivate a strong work ethic and build the confidence needed to achieve personal success”.

 The confirmed participants include Aruba, Barbados, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Guyana, St. Lucia and Antigua & Barbuda.
 
ABBA 3x3 Coordinator, Gemma Hazelwood, is confident that the Antigua and Barbuda ‘Lady’ Pitbulls will do very well in the competition as training preparations are progressing smoothly.
